UNIGE policy on Vaccination

UNIGE encourages all those who wish to do so, staff members and students alike, to get vaccinated to protect themselves and others, respecting their individual choice. Vaccination is not an alternative to protective measures that we must all continue to observe scrupulously.

Get vaccinated at UNIGE

CMU: HUG Vaccination centre (3rd floor of the CMU)

Privileged access for students from the Faculty of Medicine  and from the School of Pharmaceutical Sciences  to the HUG Vaccination Centre, either:

a) Vaccination slots, upon registration > Register here

b) Without appointment, every day, from 11 am to 3 pm.

Get Vaccinated in cantonal centres

Those of you who live in Geneva and wish to get vaccinated can do so by registering on the dedicated website. It is now possible to be vaccinated with or without an appointment.

People living in other cantons or abroad with no affiliation to the LAMal must register within the vaccination plans in their place of residence.

For the UNIGE community, it is also possible to choose the date and time of your vaccination in the vaccination centre M3 (route de Chêne 18-20) > To get vaccinated at M3

Next to Uni Mail : The vaccination centre of the Permanence Médico-Chirurgicale Rond-Point Plainpalais (rue de Carouge 17-19)

This Centre is open to everyone, with or without an appointment, upon presentation of an identity card and an insurance card.

Vaccination during coursES or office hours

As it is sometimes difficult to postpone the vaccination appointments, teachers are asked to show the same tolerance towards students who should be vaccinated during class time, by excusing their absence. If the appointment is scheduled at the same time as an exam, we encourage the students concerned to reschedule their vaccination appointment. If they cannot do so, their absence will be excused under the same conditions that apply in case of illness and upon presentation of the appointment and the vaccination certificate.
